  1. Subject basically says it all: the tower received a bump during some cleaning while the array was being written to, and I'm thinking that caused the errors in the attached diagnostics, but I wanted to check in here to make sure it doesn't look to any experts like there's some deeper underlying issue I should resolve before simply going for a rebuild (which is going to take about 3 days since I still haven't found an ideal motherboard/CPU combo for speed upgrade on that front). Thanks in advance for any guidance before I start the parity rebuild! tower2-diagnostics-20220923-1552.zip
  2. Had to unexpectedly travel for work these past few weeks (RIP, returns window), but GOOD NEWS! Back home now and confirmed: setting the system clock to a modern date in the Unraid menu fixed everything. Based on a few other topics I’m seeing on system clocks, this might be tied into issues others have had with their system clocks changing/resetting after various forms of unraid shutdown (I’d had an unclean shutdown with OK non-c parity check after not too long before this incident with the system clock), so I’m going to mark this as solved and hope the details within help the team with any overall system clock issues. Thank you all so much for the help and guidance!
  3. Definitely noticing that now. Multi-hour power outage last Tuesday (7/19) if it makes a difference on that front (non-correcting parity check fine after everything got back to normal). Sign of a deeper-rooted issue? (Edit: UPS-protected box, manual power-off button-press before UPS died) (Edit 2: was running gfjardim preclear plugin on a USB-connected drive through unassigned devices WHEN POWER OUTAGE OCCURRED, despite manual shutdown before UPS died, if that makes a difference in anything)
  4. Nope; neither. ISP modem/wifi combo (wifi disabled) into a Netgear R6 series wifi router, both with vanilla default settings. Direct ethernet cable for this particular box. Haven't modified anything in that chain at any point in the better part of the past 5 years.
  5. Yeah, I tried everything listed above, and no luck. System still can't reach githubusercontent by ping (raw still OK), and the manual plugin installation attempt gives me an SSL verification failure error. Any ideas for next steps to find the cause of the github / amazonaws blockage on my end? Or if it's ISP-based, does this mean I basically need to just accept unraid as a deprecated OS for my living situation, at least until I move to a new home with a new potential ISP? Seriously, any ideas at all will be incredibly appreciated! Thanks to everyone for the help so far.
  6. Done. Thank you for checking! CA-Logging-20220723-0847.zip
  7. Similar results from raw, but non-raw comes up blank:
  8. Yep; screen gives the wiggly-line "loading" animation for a second, then always goes to "Download of appfeed failed. Community Applications requires your server to have internet access. The most common cause of this failure is a failure to resolve DNS addresses. You can try..." ...and then I've gone through all the things to try, using unraid Network Settings, router settings, changing one thing at a time in each as a troubleshooting method... nada. Checked forum posts for others getting this error message, and tried some of their workarounds. Still the same error message. All three servers listed in the forum as handling the appfeed are currently up and reporting no connection errors. I'm totally at a loss and out of ideas (other than giving up and messing with Crystal Disk or whatever, which wouldn't be the end of the world... but damn, it'd be nice to have a preclear option back in my comfort zone, if possible).
  9. I'm definitely not explaining my situation properly. I use my server daily, access it daily, and am constantly on top of drive-replacement-related issues. That's kind of all I use unraid for: a big, dumb-terminal NAS box for file storage and access. WORM stuff. If the default was to keep those boxes completely "off the internet", I would probably never take extra steps to get them communicating with the outside world, if only for security purposes - I just get no personal benefit from (what absolutely seem like amazing and useful) extra features that unraid now offers which it didn't a decade or so ago when I started using it. By no means am I trying to cast shade at any of these features, if anyone's taking my posts the wrong way; I'm just trying to get my stress test functionality back for new disks while changing as little of my comfortable-for-10ish-years setup as possible. Seriously thankful for all the help so far!
  10. Sorry, poor phrasing on my part - I haven't clicked on the Apps tab since I first set it up (I think back when I upgraded to the 6.9 series, a couple years back). I definitely haven't tried installing anything (apps or otherwise) since the version bump, until now (trying to install this new "preclear for unassigned devices" service). There's a chance I've been having issues connecting to the Community Apps system for the entire couple of years I've had it set up - I just wouldn't know because I haven't been clicking on the tab to try using it for anything (no need on my part). I also don't see myself using it again for anything once I get preclear working again, based on my past decade or so of unraid use. Again, apologies for not phrasing that more clearly! Rough morning.
  11. Nope; they'd get lost in my flood of emails. I run dual parity, check parity monthly, keep an eye on my dashboard(s) multiple times a day, and could easily replace almost everything I have in the event of a total catastrophic data loss from missing notifications. I'm probably not the standard unraid user, but unraid has worked beautifully for my needs for about a decade now. "Easy Preclear" stress tests have absolutely been a part of that, for me.
  12. Yeah, and vaguely remember it working for stuff when I did... but I want to say that was towards the beginning of the pandemic? I'm very much a vanilla-unraid user. I don't think I've clicked the Apps button at all since I first set it up way back when.
